The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live on Stage" August 29, 1969, at the Family Dog on the Great Highway, San Francisco, California, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
~This Day in GRATEFUL DEAD History~
I couldn't be there in 69' but I showed up 40 years later on the anniversary...where were you, man?
This is much better than their performance at Woodstock. Although we only get 10 songs here, it's the quality not the quantity that makes this special.
I wish I was at this show. This show is a "Must Have" for all serious collectors of the GRATEFUL DEAD. More R&B than most GRATEFUL DEAD shows you've ever heard, and that is because of Pigpen.
I miss Pigpen.
I said a hey,hey,hey, yeah! "New Orleans" is fantasic. Pigpens influence was magical on the GRATEFUL DEAD. His R&B influence on the GRATEFUL DEAD added a precious dimension lost to us when he died.
"Searchin" is more of Pigpens R&B infulence on the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Garcia is so into the R&B thing at this show, he sings "Good Lovin"...LOL!
I highly recommend adding this show to your 1969 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.
I recommend using your EQ during playback of most of the shows on the IA, this one included.
Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.
Here's one way to stream/download this show:
The IA recommends users of Windows XP view this web-page with RealPlayer.
RealPlayer is a free media player you can download at www.realplayer.com
Using RealPlayer to view this webpage, click the VBR M3U link to open the songs in the Playlist.
If your Playlist is not open, open it by clicking the Playlist icon at the lower right hand corner of RealPlayer.
Once the songs are in the Playlist, double click the song to play it, then click the record button at the lower left hand corner of Realplayer to record it.
When the red line reaches the other end click the stop button to download the song. Your song is in the RealPlayer Downloads folder.
Repeat these steps for each song.
Hook up audio cables (1/8th inch stereo male jack with two rca male jacks at the other end) from your headphone jack on your computer to your audio input on your Reel to Reel, Cassette,VHS, CD, DVD, MP3, recorder and record it in real time...duh?
Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD...or be an ass.
Thanks for the LOVE from 1971.
PS: Remember to click on the "DeadLists Project" link and get the "Poster" for this show.
PSS: This website only has crappy MP3's, you'd think being from San Francisco (near silicon valley)they'd be more hi-tech, but evidently snot.
